After Manchester United’s late 2-1 win over Juventus, Jose Mourinho was seen on the pitch cupping his ear at the home fans who had been giving him abuse over the 90 minutes.

When asked about this after the game by BT Sport, Mourinho responded by claiming this wasn’t an insult to them, like their words were to him.

He was then interviewed by a Swedish television station, who again questioned his behaviour. “Do you understand Italian?” he asked, referring to the abuse he received during the game. The interviewer replied that they didn’t. “Ask the FA,” he replied with a smile. “They will translate for you.”

Mourinho clearly is not impressed with the FA’s obsession with getting him banned for swearing in Portuguese.
